Customer Question

Customer: I keep getting throat abscesses, I have no tonsils. About a week or so after the antibiotics are gone, sometimes sooner, they come right back.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: It's been going on now for almost a year. After two rounds of antibiotics back to back, they told me to gargle with baking soda.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $32) to post your type of question to Health Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: Sure. Although I may be going to bed soon, it's about ten past 1 here. I am exhausted. I had my mom here for just over two months, she was visiting and broke L-1, from a fall.
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
Customer: ok
